killed 12 students and one teacher at a high school in littleton, colorado they used these four guns. two shotguns, a semi-automatic handgun and a rifle. these are the actual weapons that they used in that massacre. that shooting rampage took place on tuesday april 20th, 1999. it was in littleton, colorado. one of the tragic ironies of the timing of the columbine massacre, it was just a sad coincidence, was that the national rifle association, the nra, was holding their annual convention a week later in colorado. in denver, colorado, only about a 20-minute drive from where the columbine massacre happened. the nra said they would not cancel their conference because of columbine, but they did scale it down to a one-day event. it had been planned to be a three-day thing. and in response to the tragedy at columbine and the awful coincidence of the nra conference that was being planned for just a few days after the shooting the nra put out a statement in the form of a letter to its members that said, "our spirits must endure this terrible suffering together and so must the freedoms that bring

enforcers say when it comes to what they learned in 1999, in littleton, colorado, the columbine high school shooting, officers there were heavily criticized for not entering the building as they waited for s.w.a.t. teams to arrive. we have learned from the past, what about the future? what will schools do in the wake of what happened here in newtown on friday morning? ken trump is from the national school safety and security services which helps school districts across the country, security and emergency preparedness. so, ken, welcome to you. i know you are here in newtown, yourself. just off the top here, what were your impressions of what you saw and experienced? >> mine started as a father. i was on my kid's playground, supervising, volunteering at recess time, and 25 years of school safety experience went out the door as a punch in the gut when you hear it occurred at an elementary school. and when i was in newtown, i found it really hard to ask anybody what do you ask people? we know how they feel. i think that it's such a long-term recovery process. we know from other high profile inc
